Hatfields Motor Group are pleased to announce the acquisition of Shrewsbury Land Rover from Shukers Limited for an undisclosed sum, in a deal managed by David Kendrick, head of automotive at UHY who represented Shrewsbury Land Rover.
Hatfields, a Top 100 dealer group that has been in existence since the 1920’s already represents Jaguar in Shrewsbury as well as representing a number of other franchises including Land Rover, Volvo and Hyundai. The acquisition of Shrewsbury Land Rover sees their representation with the brand increase to four Land Rover retail locations along with five Jaguar retail locations.
Hatfields managing director, Gareth Williams stated:
“I am pleased to have purchased the Shrewsbury Land Rover business which is a well-known retail location that has been established in the area for a long time. Combining this new business with our existing infrastructure will allow us to further grow the JLR market share in the territory. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues into the Hatfields Group.”
Comment from David Kendrick, head of UHY’s automotive team:
“This is another example of the JLR dual branding with a single operator representing both the jaguar and Landrover brands in the specific territory. The Shrewsbury Land Rover dealership which has historically traded as Shukers is a well-known business and I have no doubt it will become a great profit centre for Hatfields moving forward.”
